What’s funny to me is that fact that I don’t get the punchline of most jokes. I’m that person that has a puzzled look on her face after a joke has been told. It has to be explain to me and of course, that annoys the jokester!
I think it’s because when I was younger I was really shy and sensitive. I found that most jokes are at the expense of others and that was offensive to me and I would become extremely upset. I have grown some, but I usually still don’t get jokes.
Anyhow, my loving husband told my daughter this joke when she was (10) years old, much to my dismay. She still thinks it’s funny at (13) and loves to tell it to new friends. So here goes…
Two hobos are traveling together and are starving; traveling further, they find a dead animal, covered in maggots and slime. One hobo says to the other, “I’m eating this”, and the other hobo says, “You go ahead.”
A little while later after his meal the hobo throws up and his hobo pal says, “Now, that’s what I’ve been waiting for…a hot meal!“
That’s the punchline I leave you with for this Friday! Ugh!!! Now think happy thoughts and have a great weekend!
